This week's befuddling caption comes to us courtesy the Associated Press:
Pakistani Shiite Muslims lay a U.S. flag on the road and chant slogan during a rally to condemn Monday's suicide bombing in Karachi, Pakistan on Friday, Jan. 1, 2010. Karachi, the country's largest city, came to a virtual standstill after religious and political leaders called for a general strike to protest a bombing that killed 44 people and subsequent riots. The banner reads 'The attack of Shiite procession is the conspiracy of oppressive forces.' (AP Photo/Fareed Khan)
Laying a U.S. flag on the road? During a rally against "suicide bombing?"
Funny, I thought laying the U.S. flag on the road was typically a precursor to something else entirely... Like, for instance, an anti-American protest.
Maybe I'm just not "nuanced" enough to understand the subtle message that Fareed Khan's trying to send.
